noting the poll, i realized i have no idea when strings should be changed, whats the standard and why/how do you know?

 

also, is there a way to get rid of the math at the bottom for replies and posts?

It's been a while, but I think the math question stops after you've made enough posts/replies.  50 or 100 or something like that.

@risk  String changes are pretty different time frame from pretty much everyone you ask. lol. I know i change my strings when ever i start hearing my strings sound more "dead" like they have lost some of the tone they produce, or if i start seeing areas where they are weakening or if i want to try a new type of string.

I know i've heard that if your a professional player that plays hours on end a day most change theirs out anywhere from every 6 weeks to 3 months and I've heard for those who are beginners/amateurs you can go about 9 months to a year if your only playing an hour or two a day. 

But i just go by the sound and look of my strings. hope that wasn't to confusing of an answer! 

some more experienced people here might have a better answer for you but thats what i've found for most of my playing anyways. 

Lead me, Follow me, or get out of my way!
